CSD18563Q5A: 5V gate drive

Part Number: CSD18563Q5A

Dear *,

is it recommended to drive the gate of the CSD18563Q5A with 5V ?

Best Regards,


  • Hello David,

    Thanks for your interest in TI FETs. The CSD18563Q5A can be driven from 5V or 12V gate drive. The abs max VGS = +/-20V and on resistance is specified at VGS = 4.5V and VGS = 10V. The higher gate drive voltage will result in lower on resistance and reduced conduction loss but higher gate driver loss. Depending on your application and operating conditions, higher or lower gate drive voltage may result in lower overall losses. TI has many FET selection tools available on the MOSFET Support & training website.
